SLTV: You’ve done some modeling and have a killer eye for vintage. We loved your local shop, Muse Vintage! What has been your inspiration and what made you make the move into beauty?
Darin: I’ve always been obsessed with beauty and makeup, so being in the modeling and fashion industry really helped make it a natural transition for me.

SLTV: What does fashion mean to you and do you incorporate that into your work?
Darin: Yes, I absolutely love incorporating fashion into my makeup looks. Whether it be a vintage necklace or a pair of statement earrings from one of my favorite boutiques! I feel makeup and fashion are different mediums of self-expression that go hand in hand to create a story.

SLTV: What is your favorite makeup trend for Spring/Summer 2018?
Darin: One of my favorite trends for 2018 is trading out matte liquid lipstick for a glossier look, they are perfect for spring or summer!

SLTV: Are there any beauty hacks you can share or any beauty must haves we should run out and get?
Darin: To me moisturizer is key! I really like the Ultra Facial Crème from Kiehls!

SLTV: What’s next, and are they any new opportunities coming up for you that we can watch out for?
Darin: I do have a trip to Hawaii coming up soon, so I will definitely be pulling tropical inspiration for summer looks! In the meantime I post creative and glam looks regularly on my Instagram. I also hope to start creating video tutorials in the near future!
